ITSTTROIDUCTIODSr. 



As the People of the Hawaiian Kingdom await with an 
affectionately loyal interest the return of their Sovereign from 
his tour round the world, it was to meet the expectation of 
the hour, that this slight slsetch, or outline of His Majesty's 
travel was prepared; to be distributed on the day of the 
King's return to his capital, so that not only the Hawaiian 
resident, eager to recall to mind, the particulars of the royal 
journey, but also the stranger who might happen in our 
midst, should have in compact form, information of the 
King's movements abroad, and of the important objects, 
which animated a patriotic Hawaiian Chief to undertake the 
great journey. 

About one year ago, the King's health had been unfavora. 
bly affected ; and it was manifest, that a pleasant change, and 
complete relief from the cares of State, were necessary to 
restore His Majesty to his wonted vigor and healthful tone. 
But, King Kalakaua, more alive to the interests of his State, 
'than to the care of his person, would not consent to go abroad 
merely as an invalid tourist; but determined that his journey 
should be made subservient to the welfare of his Kingdom; 
and he undertook the arduous tour chiefly with a view to 
promote the re-population of his realm. 



6 

King Kalakaua is the first and only Monarch who has 
made the tour of the world; and his journey was undertaken 
for the greatest and noblest purpose, that could animate a 
King. Looking to ancient times, we find a King of Ithaca 
who undertook an expedition to settle a point of honor, that 
aftected his neighbor; or an Alexander who marched through 
Asia to leave a track of desolation behind; and in modern 
times, we see an adventuring Chai'les of Sweden, while 
aadly seeking to destroy his neighbors, meet with his own 
destruction; or a Shah of Persia, traveling to squander bar- 
baric wealth, and to display barbaric tastes; or an Emperor 
of Brazil, an enlightened and humane man; but who goes 
-abroad to attend scientific congresses and gratify his taste for 
scientific loi;e; whereas our Hawaiian King, — our enlightened 
and humane Pacific Monarch, goes abroad solely for the pur- 
pose of benefitting his Kingdom, to promote the welfare of 
his people; and to make good the noble motto, and device, 
pytTclaimed at his accession,- — "Hooulu Lahui !" — Increase 
THE Nation ! 



KllSra KA^LA^KA.!!^, 



Whose Kingdom comprises the Hawaiian Archipelago ; also 
Palmyra, Cornwallis, and other islands of the central Pacific, 
ascended the Throne, February 12th, 1874, and is the 
seventh Hawaiian monarch, since Kamehameha the Con. 
queror organized the Kingdom. His Majesty was born No. 
vember 16, 1836, and is now in the forty-fifth year of his age 
and in the eighth of his reign. His Majesty received an excel-- 
lent scholastic -education in the Eoyal School, superintended 
by Eev. Mr. and Mrs. Cooke of the American Mission, in com- 
pany with the late Kings Kamehameha J V. and V., King Lu- 
nalilo. Her Majesty Queen Dowager Emma, and other Princes 
and Princesses of the Kingdom. On leaving school, the young 



Prince David Kalakatja was trained in military exercises. 
He received a commission as lieutenant of the King's Guard 
in 1852, was promoted Captain and Major on the accession of 
Kamehameha IV., and became Colonel and Chief of Staff, 
under Kamehameha V. His Majesty also filled the positions 
of Military Secretary and Lord Chamberlain, during the 
reigns of Kamehameha IV. and V. He was also member of 
the Privy Council of State, and hereditary Noble, or Alii of 
the House of Nobles. He ascended the Hawaifan Throne on 
the demise of King Lunahlo, in 1874; His Majesty speaks 
the English language with perfect purity, and has the style 
and manner of at highly cultivated gentleman. His Majesty 
is a very dilligent student, and has studiously perused the 
works of many modern thinkers of great eminence ; and as 
his tastes are decidedly military. His Maj'esty has a collec- 
tion of military works, remarkable for variety and extent. 

His Majesty, by invitation of the American Government, 
visited the United States in 1875. The Reciprocity Treaty 
of mutual advantage to the two countries was the result of 
the royal visit. 



KING KALAKAtJA'S BOAST. 



O'er land and sea I've made my way 

To farthest lud, and great Cathay; 

Beached Afric's shores, and Europe's strand; 

And met the mighty of every land. 

And as I stood by each sovereign's side, 

Who' ruled his. realm with a royal pride, 

I felt how small my sway, — and weak: — 

My throne based on a mere volcanic peak, — 

"Where millions Ao these Kings obey,. 

Some thousands only own my sway. 

And yet I feel that I may boast, 

Some good within my sea-bound coast, 

Bicher than any of my grander peers. 

That I within my realm need have no fears : — 

May mingle with my people without dread; 

No danger fear for my unguarded head. 

And boast a treasure, sent me from above 

Thatrl have indeed,, my people's love. 



FAREWELL TO THE KING IN HIS 
t^APITAL. 



A deep feeling of anxiety and interest pervaded the cpna- 
munity on the eve of the departure of the King, and all 
classes and races strove to outvie each other in their 
expressions of good-will and affection, in bidding adieu to 
His Majesty. The loyal expression of the most intelligent 
foreign sentiment was manifested at the state dinner on Fi'iday 
13th Jan.; and on Sunday, the 16th the day was made memor- 
able by an outpouring of affectionate adieux from His Majes- 
ty's native people. At the Catholic Cathedral High Mass 
was celebrated. The church was thronged with high officials, 
diplomatic attaches, and private citizens from every walk in 
life. The good Sisters of the Sacred Heart, preceded by 
their pupils, joined in this bon voyage to the King. The choir, 
reenforced for the occasion, rendered the selected music with 
tenderness and power. Monseigneur Bishop Louis Maigret 
with all the -Fathers and Brothers of the order were present. 
After the sermon, the King with his escort and the Fathers, 
passed into the court-yard under an elevated alcove, when the 
following address was read to His Majesty by the Hon. God- 
frey Ehodes: 
To His Majesty the King : 

Sire: — We, your loyal and faithful subjects, are members 
of the Holy Catholic Church established in your Kingdom. 
And we, inspired by the uniform teachings of our Holy Re- 
ligion, are imbued with a spirit of steadfast loyalty to your 
Majesty's person; as being appointed by Divine decree to the 
Sovereignty of the Hawaiian Islands; and when we receive 
assurances from your Majesty's lips of a contemplated purpose 
of travel in distant countries, even to the most distant, and to 
make a circuit of the Globe, we, in tlie spirit of faithful sub- 
jects, accept your Koyal purpose, and are ready to unite in 
prayers to Almighty God to speed you on your way, and to pre- 



■serve you in health 'till you return to your people. At the 
same time, prompted by our love to your Royal person, we 
ieel constrained to say that your Majesty's departure at this 
time on so long a journey awakens our deep anxieties. We 
would be glad to have better assurances that your Majesty's 
safety and dignity abroad are fully provided for; and 
that the peace of the Kingdom will be fully assured during 
the absence of the King. 

God save your Majesty. 

Some words of warm adieu were uttered by native speak- 
ers, linthusiasm, affection, and loyalty stirred the vast mul- 
titude, aifd plainly moved the heart of the King. Over one 
thousand people were present at the Cathedral. 

AT KAWAIAHAO. 

The old Stone Mission Church, a large audience assembled 
in the evening. The church was crowded to it's utmost ca- 
pacity, and a warm and sympathetic feeling pervaded this 
mass of people, assembled to invoke the blessing of Almighty 
God in behalf of their King, about to take a long and per- 
haps a perilous journey. Their Majesties the King and Queen 
were present, also H. R. H. the Princess Liliuokalani, and 
other members of the Royal family. 

The Rev. H. H. Parker opened the service of the evening 
with prayer, and after a melodious chant by a sweet-toned 
choir. His Majesty rose in his seat, and speaking of his in- 
tended departure, gave utterance to gracious words of hope 
and affection to his people; and he commended his royal sis- 
er, the Princess Liliuokalani to their generous and loyal care 
and support, to enable her to carry on satisfactorily the Gov- 
ernment of the Kingdom during his absence. The words of 
His Majesty were received with warm and tender expressions 
of aloha and adieu. 

At the conclusion of the King's remarks, the Hon. Noble 

Kapena rose to reply — i 

"We have heard our King tell us this evening about his 
intended visit abroad. He spoke to you from the same place 
six years ago, when he went before to visit America. It is 
true the King goes but for the good of his people, to make

the country richer by getting, more capital and people to 
come this way. See the result of hia visit to America — be- 
fore he went natives were receiving but 25 cents per day, now 
see what they get, $2.50 and $3.00 per day. This is the 
Xing's work. JSTew houses, ships, railroads, and every new 
enterprise are largely due to the King's visit abroad. But 
all this wealth is of no use if there is to be only one kauna, a 
mere handful of us left. So the King this time takes with 
him a Commissioner to enquire into and bring other people 
of brown skins here to re-people these isles. The King him- 
self would be only so in name if he had no people to rule. 
The King will not rest until his hope of re-peopling these 
isles has been fulfilled. Let no one have any little feeling of 
jealousy about the King's going. Let no one be envious. 
The King goes to see how the great nations of the earth 
govern and rule their people, and it is well. It does not do 
to always remain in the dark. The great nations now look 
with respect on this little Kingdom and will have still more, 
wheij they see our King traveling among them for informa- 
tion to benefit his people, Let us all pray every day for the 
King's health, and safe return to his people." 

MIDNIGHT SERENADES. 

And the feelings of the people were not stayed from their 
expression, even after churches had closed, and the hours for 
slumber came; for, all night the Palace grounds were vocal 
with song and mele. At midnight and afterwards a band of 
Hawaiian chorus singers made the calm, clear moonlight 
vocal with tender and touching chant. Some of these chor- 
uses have a very sweet and plaintive melody; and during this 
lovely midnight hour, the soft summer air of the walks and 
umbrageous foliage of lolani Palace, was tremulous with the 
tender songs of Hawaiiaus bidding farewell to their King. 

THE KING AT SEA, ON THE "CITY OF SYDNEY." 

His Majesty had a pkasant and interesting trip per "City 
of Sydney." The company on board was highly scientific. 
Professor Proctor discoursed to the King and other fellow 
passengers upon "Star depths," which have systems "inhabit- 
ed by beings of greater importance than any that can.be de- 
veloped around our sun;" (of which beings we would like to 



14 

get an inkling, as to size and capacity) and he, gave ample 
assurances, that manv remarkable planetary conjunctions of 
this ill omened year, cannot have any appreciable terrestrial 
influence; which was consoling to islanders on board, satisfy- 
ing their minds that they would find their fast anchored 
Archipelago on their return just where they left it. And 
there was another scientist on board. Professor W. L. Cai-- 
penter, who enlightened the royal party and other fellow tra- 
vellers, with his views and experiences in relation to sea 
depths and temperatures of the ocean; in which he explained 
the laws affecting Gulf streams and ocean currents, and all 
the natural phenomena of our quasi aqueous globe; He pre- 
sented highly interesting illustrations of the infusorial life, 
which he collected from the ooze of the ocean's bed at depths 
of three, four and five miles, when he sailed with our friend 
Sir Wyville Thompson on board the Challenger. He had 
some of our globigerinse to show, those infinitesimal crus- 
tacese which a pin point may cover, and are hardly visible to 
^he naked eye; yet reveal to the microscope a shelly buckler 
upon which may be counted over eight hundred bosses each 
covered with a multitude of figures and corrugations. After 
one scientist had shown His Majesty remote suns so many 
hundreds of million miles farther away from us than our own 
sun, and so many thousands of millions of miles bigger than 
our own globe, it was well that there was another scientist to 
bring the King back to the earth, and mentally plunging with 
him into the depths, could there reveal the infinitely small, 
and bring the royal mind to a fine point. 

To relieve this heavy strain of science, a vocalist on board 
(G. Darrell, Esq.,) contributed some strains of song of love 
and war for the entertainment of his fellow passengers. And 
then comes the genial, social, and capable Captain Dearborn, to 
add an inspiring word, and a cheering assurance, to make the 
King and all' his cabin happy. 

It is stated by all on board during the trip, that 
the voyage in respect to weather, and all other circumstances

was an exceediugly pleasant oue. The King enjoyed 
himself in his usual cheerful and dignified, way, and seems 
to have won only golden opinions from all his fellow travelers. 
On the morning of Thursday the 20th January, the City of 
Sydney steamed away from Honolulu with the royal party; 
and on the afternoon of Saturda.y the 29th, she steamed into 
the harbor within the Golden Gate. And now we will quote 
from the chronicler's of San Francisco and Sacramento, other 
particulars attending the King's tour round the world. 



THE KING IN SAN FRANCISCO. 

His Majesty was right royally received by the citizens of 
San Francisco. The ladies of the Palace Hotel determined 
to tender to the monarch a reception in the parlors of the 
hotel, ere he departed upon his tedious ocean voyage to the 
Flowery Kingdom. Gigantic efforts were put forth by the 
ladies, and everything done that could add one iota to the 
perfection of detail or brilliancy of the whole fete. Last 
evening the auspicious event transpired, and a grander recep- 
tion it has seldom, if ever, been allotted to a San Franciscan to 
witness. The ladies of the Invitation and Eeception Com- 
mittees may rest satisfied with their w«ll earned laurels. 
The arrangements were simply perfect; the lists of guests 
was taken from the creme de la creme of om- ^society, and the 
judgment of the delighted guests was a unanimous verdict of 
praise. The most wonderful circumstance in connection with 
last evening's affair was the astonishing rapidity with which 
the whole had been elaborated since the inception, scarce one 
short week ago, and adds one more to the honors of the Com- 
mittees. 



18 

The cards of invitation were engraved in script, on a heavy 
card, four by five aiid a quarter inches, and read as follows : 

The Ladies of the Palace Hotel 

request the pleasure of your company 

Monday Evening, February Seventh,

"The receptioa will long be rememberd by the fortunate 
guests, who were permitted to witness this one of the grand- 
est social events in the history of the city." 

KIKG KALAKAUA ENTERTAINED AT THE PACIFIC 
YACHT CLUB HOUSE. 

Although His Majesty, King Kalakaua did not come here 
in his official capacity, he has received attentions from our 
citizens as numerous as on his previg"^ visit six years ago. 

The distinguished visitors have no cause to complain of the 
hospitality of their friends in this city, as the latter apparent- 
ly vie with one another in their attentions to the King and 
Ms suite. The fact that His Majesty is travelling incognito 
has been taken advantage of by some of his friends to give 
entertainments which they believe will be of special interest 
to him, when formality, due to a King, but which can be 
waived in the person of a Prince, does not interfere with the 
pleasures of their guests, Such an afiair took place yester- 
day afternoon, when Commodore E. S. Floyd, of the Pacific 
Yacht Club, gave an informal entertainment in honor of His 
Majesty. Commodore Floyd is one of those gentlemen who 
has enjoyed several years of warm personal friendship with

King Kalakaua^ and yesterday lie invited the latter to a sail 
on the bay and a dinner at the Club House, near Saucelito. 
Capt. Menzies took occasion to express the honor t^e mem- 
bers of the Club felt in entertainins; such a distinguished guest, 
and proposed the toast of His Majesty, King Kalakaua. The 
King responded briefly, returning thanks to Commodore Floyd 
and the members of the Pacific Yacht Club for the elegant 
entertainment and for their action in electing him a member 
of the Club which he considered a great honor, and would 
always remember the whole afl:air as one of the most pleasant 
incidents of his visit to San Francisco. He also expressed 
the hope that on his return next August that he would again 
have the pleasure of meeting the members of the Club ou 
' such an occasion, with the additional attraction of the pres- 
ence ot the ladies. His remarks were warmly applauded, 
and at their conclusion rousing cheers were given. 

THE CHINESE CONSUL-GENERAL'S DINNER TO 
KING KALAKAUA. 

The Chinese Consul-General entertained King Kalakaua 
with a dinner at the Hang Fer Low restaurant^ the Uelmo- 
nico of Chinatown, last evening. In a Celestial way it was a 
very swell aftair. All the nobs of Chinatown were there in 
their best bibs and tuckersi The company outside of the 
state table included the President and Secretary of each of 
the nine Chinese Benevolent Associations of the city and all 
of the rich wholesale merchants, to the number of sixty. They 
wore an extraordinary costume for the occasion, being dressed 
in mandarin rank, with buttons and other insignia to denote 
their standing. The buttons are worn in their caps, the 
color denoting the rank of their blue-blood wearers. The 
majority wore the crystal button, a few the red, the latter 
indicating the bluest of the blue bloods. The restaurant, 
which is orientally gorgeous in its agpointments, was splen- 
didly decorated for the occasion, and its usual display of gas 



22 

jets being supplemented with an abundance of large vari- 
colored lanterns of paper and bamboo, gave it a brilliant 
aspect viewed from the street or the surrounding houses. 
The royal table was spread in the small room of the restau- 
rant, which was specially dressed for the occasion. 

The ' Guests. 

On the wall at the foot of the table, facing the Consul 
General, who presided, were festooned the American, Chin^ 
eae and Hawaiian flags. Around the regal board were 
gathered the King, the Consul, the principal members of the 
Consulate, the traveling companions of the King, and such 
of our citizens as were invited. On the landing they were 
drawn up in a line, and the Chinese, after making a concerted 
salaam and shaking each his own hand, after their sociable 
custom, were brought forward and each in turn was presented 
to the King, shaking his hand and passing to each member 
of the party. This little reception, in which the Chinese 
shewed an easy, polished politeness, over, the festal party 
was seated. The persons named aL^/ie were seated at the 
State table, the others in the adjoining room about little 
square tables, each accommodating five guests, the outer side 
of the table being left unoccupied, in order that its hanging 
of rich crimson satin with gold embroiderj' might be shown 
to advantage. The feasting done. Colonel Bee arose, and on 
behalf of the Consul-General proposed the health of the King, 
saying that the entertainment had been devised from a desire 
to show him some of the inner life of the Chinese, and to 
wish him a prosperous and pleasant journey. They desire 
that the three flags entwined on the wall should represent 
the three countries which the Pacific ocean divided, yet 
brought closte together, joined in amity for all time ; that 
they might go hand in hand, prosperous in all the arts and 
sciences, civilization, and everything that makes nations and

VISIT TO SACRAMENTO. 



King Kalakaua in the Capital City of California — He visits the 
Legislature and takes in several other sights — I'Ae Governor 
chaperons him about the city. 

Quite a large crowd had collected at the depot to see this 

genuine, living representative of modern monarchy, who 

proved to be a rather portly and generally fine-looking man of 

middle age, dressed in plain citizen's g^rb, and sporting a 

pretty fair set of side-whiskers. His countenance bore a 

genial expression, and the impres^sion that one could get from 

a brief glance at the royal gentleman would be a favorable 

one. 

TAKING IN THE TOWN. 

The royal party was accompanied from San Francisco by 
Hon. Glaus Spreckels. Garriages were in waiting for them, 
to which they were promptly conducted and driven rapidly 
to the Gapitol, where an informal visit was paid to His Ex- 
cellency Governor Perkins, and a brief time was spent in 
pleasant conversation. Apartments had been secured for the 
party at the Arcade Hotel, to which they repaired at the 
conclusion of their visit to the Governor, the Governor ac- 
companying them, the latter having accepted an invitation 
from His Majesty to dine with him. An elegant dinner was 
partaken of, after which the King expressed a desire to visit 
a theater, and it was accordingly arranged that the party 
should drop in at the Capital varieties, the only place of 
amusement now open in this city, where three private boxes 
were placed at their disposal. During the evening several 
calls were made upon prominent citizens. His Majesty re- 
tiring a little before midnight. 

To-day the party again visited the State Capitol, and spent 



26 

considerable time ou the floor of each House, in the pro- 
ceedings of which they seemed to take much interest. 

King Kalakaua is traveling incognito, his trip having no 
official significance, and being merely for the purpose of ob- 
servation and pleasure. For this reason he is addressed as 
Prince by his traveling companions. 

His Majesty returned to Saa Francisco the following day. 

OTHER ENTERTAIlSrMENTS OF THE KING IN SAN 
FRANCISCO. 

The Fkbnch Ball. — Piatt's Hall was crowded to its utmost 
capacity on Saturday evening last, where the Ligue Nation, 
ale Franeaise gave a reception in honor of the new French 
Consul, M, Vauvert de Mean and Madame Mean. His 
Majesty, King Kalakaua, accompanied by Colonel Judd and 
Major Macfarlaine of his staff were present. In the first 
Lancers, His Majesty danced with Madame Planet, wife of 
the French Chancellor, and subsequently waltzed with Mrs. 
Dr. Julius Rosenstin. Later in the evening he escorted the 
latter lady to supper. ''• 

The King evidently enjoyed the affair, as he participated 
in most of the dances after supper. 



His Majesty was entertained at dinner by Glaus Spreckele, 
Esq.; a very grand banquet, prepared in the highest style of 
Parisian art, and the most prominent men of the city were 
invited to join the King. ' 

Another delightful entertainment in honor of the King, a 

soiree musicale gotten up by our Consul Mr. Severance at 

the Palace Hotel. This is reported as an exquisite affair of 

lyrical entertainment, and was attended by the elite of the 
city. 

Thus every day, and it may be said every hour of King 
Kalakaua's stay in San Francisco has been filled up with a

grand ovation of festivitieSi And' we feef assured that no 
potentate of Europe, nor eminent great man of America's 
own soil, could have received greater and mo-re honorable 
attention; and as the San Francisco Gall says, this is accorded 
to King Ealakaua, because as a worthy Chief, he has won 
the love of a loyal people. 



THE KING'S POPULAKITY ABROAD. 

"^King Kalakaua has been entertaified I'ight royally by 
our social lions since his re entry into San Francisco society, 
and can hardly feel otherwise than pleased at the marks of 
esteem that he is everywhere receiving. That His- Majesty 
had a right to expect an ovation, his previous visit assured 
him, still he must have been unprepared for the very gener- 
ous outpouring of hospitality that has greeted him. This 
lionizing is not so much the outcome of a desire to honor the 
rank of the royal visitor, as an admiration of him who- has 
done so much in one short reign towards the social and 
political advancement of his people ; a people whom he 
found, on coming into his heritage, to be very far down in 
the scale of nations. That the ruler of the Sandwich Islands^ 
is to-day feted the world over, is an all-sufficient argument as 
to the success of his earnest efforts ; hence these tokens of 
respect." 

On the 8th inst.. His Majesty and suite went on board the 
steamship Oceanic, accompanied by a host of enthusiastic 
friends, and sailed for Japan and various ports of Asia. 



VOYAGE ON THE OCEANIC. 

Among the incidents of the journey of His Majesty, when 
at sea on board the Oceanic, and sailing across the meridian 
of Honolulu but a few degrees to the northward of this 
Archipelago; conversation of the Royal party and travelling 



30 

frieiide, turned upon the home feeling that sprung up in Ha- 
waiian hearts, yearning for their own loved shores, when thus 
passing them by, as it were; And His Majesty touched with 
reminiscences of his Kingdom, his people and his Queen, 
especially the latter, gave such a tender expression to his 
home and domestic feelings, that a little poetic inspiration, 
there and then present, shaped the faithful, royal emotion 
into the following lines. They were a waft of emotion from 
the King on the high sea, not only to His Queen, but also to 
all His people.

VISIT TO JAPAN. 



ARRIVAL AT YOKOHAMA. 

As the Oceanic steamed into Yokohama harbor very early 
on the morning of the 4th March, the eager lookout from the 
decks of the steamer could count forty-two men-of-war and 
large steamers at anchor in the bay. The Hawaiian flag had 
been run up to the main and had floated in the morning 
breeze but a few moments, when a brilliant display of bunting 
arched each giant ship-of-war and steamer, from the water's 
edge to the main truek,_ and from rhain ti-uckto water's edge, 
with the flag of Hawaii flying at the main of every one. At 
the same time the shrill boatswains whistles piped lively over 
the waters, as the nimble tar^ coursed up rigi'ng "and, swarm- 
ing out on the yards of their several ships, manned them in 
splendid style, and hurrahecJ, not oiily three times thi-'ee, but all 
the time whilst our steamer was passing in review, and ships 
and shore joined with guns in a royal roar of welcome. 

Hardly ha,d'4he. Oceanic anchored/ when hundreds of sam- 
pans, or native canoes, and small craft of all . kinds^ came 
thronging around the broad sides of tha great steamer, and 
the people on board this mosquito fleet were making a clamor 
that drowned the shrieks of the steamer's whistle, when a shot 
was heard, a puff of smoke was observed to float away 
from a distant .battery, a steam launch put off, and by magic, 
as it were, the clamor outside the Oceanic had ceased, and the 
swarming sampans had pulled and paddled out of sight. 
The approaching launch bore a forked white flag with a red 
ball in the centre and an Imperial crown on top. This was 
the'lmperial launch with the Admiral on board. The z'oyal 
standard of Hawaii was now run up to the main. Again a 
5 



grand salvo pealed forth from every war-ship, and chief an- 
swered chief right royally in Yokohama bay. 

Admiral Nakamura of the Royal Japanese Navy, came on 
board, and communicating with the gentlemen of His 
Majesty's suite, conveyed to them His Imperial Majesty's 
wish that his royal brother of Hawaii would be the guest of 
the Sovereign of Japan during all of his stay on Japanese 
soil. 

His Majesty consented to waive his incognito and become 
the guest of the Emperor of Japan, as King of the Hawaiian 
Islands. 

Eight state boats or barges, followed the steam launch, and 
bore the King and suite with baggage and attendants to the 
Imperial summer seat Noge Yama. 

As the royal party lauded and pi-oceeded on their way, they 
were greeted on all sides with enthusiastic demonstrations of 
welcome. At every crossing they past, along two miles of 
route, the Japanese'and the Hawaiian flags were suspended 
from lofty poles on either side, that leaned over almost touch- 
ing trucks, so that the Imperial white banner and the cross 
and bars of Hawaii, blended their foJds together over the 
heads of the passing cortege. 

SUMMER PALACE OF NOGEYAMA. 

After a ceremoiiious reception at the grand entrance of the 
Palace, His Majesty was escorted to magnificent chambers 
and parlor, used as Imperial apartments, that were superbly 
tapestried, with ebony atid gold furniture, with most elabor- 
ate arabesques, with palatial chandeliers, with doors of enamel 
and gold; and the burnished gold and glossy lacquered and 
enameled surfaces reflected the surprise and delight of our 
royal party. 

• His Majesty's suite were also provided with apartments in 
the Palace, 

Prince Higashi-Fnshimi-no-Miya, waited on our travellers.

He pointed out the marvels of the Imperial summer seat, 
and as the royal party expressed their unqualified delight ; 
they were assured that this waS' but the threshold of the 
Imperial palatial glories. 

The royal party after spending the night at Nogeyama, the 
Imperial summer seat, left Yokohama the following day at 
11 o'clock A. M., by express train for Tokio, distant 18 miles, 
and on arrival were received by four Imperial Princes, who 
accompanied His Majfesty and suite to the Palace. His Im- 
perial Japanese Majesty met King Kalakaua in the ante halL 
of the Palace, and welcomed him to Japan with marked cor- 
diality'. The King was then conducted to the saloon of the 
Empress, where he was received with distinguished courtesy 
and amicable attention. After a few hours I'epose, His Ma- 
jesty the King, was informed by an Imperial Prince of His 
Imperial Majesty's approach, to return the visit of the King 
of Hawaii in his apartments. 

PALACE OP ENRIOKWAN. 

Our Hawaiian royal party were highly impressed with the 
admirable order of the Imperial Palace at Tokio. The mag- 
nificent park grounds seemed to be swarming with attendants, 
and all dressed in European fashion, of good style and quality 
of garments. An admirable system of service seemed to 
regulate the government of the palace. Everybody and 
everything scrupulously clean, and all work and service car- 
ried on without any noise or confusion. 

On the morning after arrival at Tokio the Hawaiian visi- 
tors were surprised to find that a fall of snow, had occurred 
during the night, to the depth of 4 inches, and had covered 
the Palace Park with a complete mantle of white. Soon they 
observed some laborers with pieces of matting about 6 feet 
long, and with pieces of bamboo at "each end, a simple contri- 
vance for removing rubbish, and in a few hours, not a speck 
of snow was to be seen in the park. 

This beautiful palace is shaped like a letter H, with a ceu- 



38 

tral line of edifice, and two wings of about the same Itength. 
The Imperial walls are black, and black and gold in glossy ^ 
enamel appear , everywhere, as the expression of Japanese 
Imperial taste. The walls of the palace chambers are not 
papered, but draped or tapestried with exquisite patterns of 
muslin and silk. Superb ebony and gold wardrobes and 
beaufets, adorn the spacious chambers and parlors. English 
fire-grates, with polished marble or steel mantels are in all the 
apartments. Numerous French and Swiss clocks of beauti- 
ful and elaborate designs', afford ample opportunity to note 
the flight of time in this-palaee of delights. 

One thing of beauty especially attracted the attention of 
our royal tourists, was the regal Oamelia, so superb and 
perfect in its choosen home. In all parts of the palace upon 
etageres and stately beaufets, they beheld lofty lacquered 
vases, in which were camelias, as large as saucers, cream 
tinted and waxen white, like marvellous productions 6f the 
most consummate art. This royal flower ought to attain al] 
its perfection of beauty in Hawaii nei, and we hope that one 
of the results of His Majesty's visit to Japan, will be the 
cultivation of the- earaelia ; so that should a Japanese Em- 
peror, or Imperial Prince come this way, they will be pleased 
to be greeted by the queenly flower of their own home. 
Also fl wonderful variety of miniature plants in vases the size 
of a teacup ; and a great taste, and elegance of horticulture, 
were everywhei-e observed. 

In one chamber, the King and suite found four perfect 
billiard tables of the latest patterns set apart for their use. 
In another apartment a grand piano of the finest tone. Pic. 
tures, objects of virtu, brie a brae, and curios of the rarest 
quality in great profusion. And the physical comforts of the 
travellers were admirably provided for. Fanciful dishes, yet 
of excellent taste, were in. profusion on the dining table ; and 
in their private nw>m8, each one of the party found costly 
lacquered ti-ays loaded with a variety of bonbons, which they 
supposed could not be found outside of Paris. All the table 
service used was of solid gold or silver ware.

SPIINTOMIZA THEATRE. 

Oa the day following their arrival, the royal party were 
escorted to the Imperial Theatre, Shintomiza. Twenty-eight 
carriages were required to take the train of Imperial Princes 
and Princesses, and high dignitaries, who formed the escort 
of His Majesty the King. One thousand globe shaped 
lanterns were displayed in front of and around the theatre ; 
and each one had the Imperial Japanese flag, and the Royal 
Hawaiian standard painted on them. Every walk, and every 
tree in the spacious theatre garden was hung with illuminated 
globes, every corridor and lobby was lined with thetn ; and 
the interior of the theatre was in a blaze of light.. It was 
estimated that over 3000 of these brilliant illuminated lan- 
terns decorated the great theatre, and were an especial 
display, marvellous even to Japanese eyes, in honor of King 
Kalakaua's visit. 

The centre of the dress circle, an Imperial reservation, 
capable of seating 50 persons, was fitted up and decorated 
most superbly. The programme in English and Japanese 
printed on white satin with gold fringe, the Japanese Imper- 
ial and the royal Hawaiian flags interwoven in colors. The 
Imperial and Royal Standards decorating the centre of the cir- 
cle; aud also the front of the stage. Elaborate lacquered 
tables were placed before the royal party, and loaded with 
sweetmeats, and cordials and cigars; all the gentlemen smok- 
ing, and indulging in a pose of ease and sans facon, not per- 
mitted at the Palace. His Majesty was in evening full dress, 
and decorated with the star of the order of Kalakaua. The 
Princes present each wore a single star of decoration. 

The impression produced by this audience of wealthy 

•Japanese, was that a high order of intelligence pervaded the 

company, A large number of spectacles and eyeglasses were 

observed, on what appeared to be verv, studious faces. All 
6 



42 

well dressed, and no vulgar, or clamorous applauding or his. 
sing. 
The make up and personal appearance of the Princesses 

there present, called forth some enthusiastic remarks from 
the travellers. They are described as having very fair, 
pearly and transparent complexions, with high arched eye- 
brows, a great sweetness and beauty of expression, and dressed 
very tastefully in soft, yet brilliant silks; and with a dazzling 
sparkle of brilliants around their beautiful necks, and in the 
lobes of their shell tinted ears. 

On the stage, our travellers saw fairies floating through the 
air like butterflies, and a terrific giant fighting with about 
fifty warriors; and His Majesty was delighted with the odditj 
and marvelous variety of the performance. 

During His Majesty's stay in Kioto he ordered to be pre- 
sented in his name; and as a souvenir of the royal Hawaiian 
visit to the Japanese Capital, a drop curtain for the great 
Shintomiza Theatre.| In the month of July subsequent to 
His Majesty's visit, the curtain was finished and presented to 
manager Morita by Hawaiian Consul Robert Irwin Esq, in 
behalf of His Majesty. 

The curtain is of crimson Japanese velvet. The Hawaiian 
Royal Coat of Arms is embroidered in gold in the centre, and 
distributed on each side of this in white silk embroidery is 
the inscription, 'Presented to the Shintomiza Theatre by 
Kalakaua the First, King of Hawaii, in the second month of 
the year 2541 (Japanese era).' The curtain was manufac- 
tured by Nishiraaru & Co., of Kiyoto, and is, the handsomest 
thing of the kind that has ever been used in a Japanese 
Theatre. 

"What an advertisement of the little Kindom, in that great 
empire, is this drop curtain ? The multitudes of Kioto assem- 
ble in this great theatre that seats 5000 people, — not only to 
look upon exhibitions of Japanese mimic art; but also to 
listen at times to Christian teachers; and as they gaze during

the periods of intermission upon the naraOj. and' blazonry of 
King Kalakaua and his kingdom, what feelings of. interest 
and curiosity must be evoked; and what prestige for little 
Hawaii, thus promoted by the intelligent courtesy, of her- 
thoughtful and patriotic chief abroad ! 

STATE DINNER AT AKASAKA PALACE. 

A succeeding day. His Imperial Majesty of Japan, enter- 
tained His Hawaiian Majesty at a grand state dinner, for 
which 238 covers were laid. On this occasion all the Imper- 
ial Princes and Princesses, of the court were present. 

The bill of fare was printed on white satin, with fringe of 
gold, and with the Hawaiian coat of arms at top wrought 
with gold thread. 

The table service gold and silver. The spoons and ladles 
of gold, and other articles of the service had the Imperial 
Japanese and Hawaiian flags graven upon them, with the 
Hawaiian crown on top. 

When some rare and costly Yeuve Clicquot, a present from 
the Emperor of Russia, was uncorked, the health of His 
Majesty the King of the Hawaiian Islands was proposed by 
His Imperial Japanese standing. The band struck up at the 
time the Hawaiian anthem, and the toast was received with 
the most distinguished honors by the illustrious company 
present. His Majesty did not respond by proposing His Im- 
perial Majesty's health,, as some present expected; because 
His Majesty bearing in mind that the Emperor would lunch 
with him on the morrow, thought that then would be the 
proper occasion to return the compliment. His Majesty's ap- 
pi-eciation of a correct etiquette was fully recognized. 

In the centre of the great banquetting table was a tbuntam 
all gold, of the most exquisite workmanship, with Japanese 
designs of dragons and fantastic figures of gods and goddesses, 
but it was not playing. His Imperial Majesty in the course 
of conversation with the King, expressed regret that the foun- 
tain had recently met with an accident in its hydraulic works, 



46 

it was an intricate, piece of machinery and was o«t of order, 
and he was sorry to say, would not sport its diversified jets, as 
usual. His Majesty quickly responded that the High Powe/s 
of heaven had been pouring out such a superabundance of 
water of late (recent heavy rains) to bless and fructify His 
Imperial Majesty's domains, that the little gods and goddesses, 
of the fountain felt, no doubt, that it would be impious to add 
their little spout at this time. His Imperial Majesty laughed 
heartily at the conceit, and the remark and the mirth went 
the round of the assembled dignitaries. 

His Majesty the King accepted an invitation to visit the 
First Christian Church of Yokohama on their anniversary, 
the tenth of March, to which the people of his Kingdom had 
so liberally contributed, many years ago. 

On the afternoon of March 12th, His Majesty the Kifig was 
received in grand audience by His Majesty the Emperor,- at 
the Private Palace; the Imperial Princes and Princesses in 
attendance. It was the occasion of the presentation to tbfe 
Emperor of the portrait of His Majesty the King, and of Her 
Majesty Queen Kapiolani. 

His Majesty the King was presented with two Japanese 
armors of ancient style, made of the best steel; visors and all 
polished; very curious, and of largest size. His Majesty the 
King received a multitude of presents from various quarters. 

When the King and his suite visited the Enriokwan Man- 
sion, in a grand park, in Tokio, the grounds were illuminated . 
by over 4,000 Japanese globe lanterns; and the King and 
suite were robed in very rich Japanese court costumes, pro- 
vided expressly for this occasion. 

On the 14th of March, the King was presented with the 
grand cross of the Imperial Japanese order of Kris-anthemum, 
by the hands of His Imperial Majesty of Japan; and on the 
15th the Emperor lunched with the King, and was decorated 
by His Majesty ^f -Hawaii with the Grand Cxoss of Kameh^- 

meha.

iucideuts during the King's sojourn of ten days, given in 
addition to those we clip frona Yokohama foreign journals, 
whilst a guest of the Emperor of Japan at Tokio; and many 
we must pass by for the present. Some incidents 
attending the King's departure from Hawaii; the loyal ova- 
tion of Kohalans; and especially the incident of the bearing 
of the King on the shoulders of his people, throus;h the surf 
by torchlight, were discussed in the grand banqueting hall of 
the Palace of Akasaka ; and the Advertiser, of Honolulu, 
that had been thoughtfully transmitted to, and carefully read 
by, gentlemen of the Imperial household, was quoted as 
authority in speaking of the story. His Imperial Majesty 
was much gratified to be informed of this demonstration of 
enthusiastic loyalty to his royal guest, whea at hom*. 

THE KING VISITS A MISSIONARY MOTHER. 

His Majesty was invited to a grand festivity at Yokohama, 
where many European as well as Japanese high officials had 
assembled to meet King Kalakaua; but His Majesty awaken- 
ed much surprise, and a feeling of increased respect for Chris- 
tian Missionary workers, in the minds of the Japanese, by 
deferring his attendance at the great festivity, and by calling 
upon old lady Gulick, the Missionary mother residing in 
Yokohama, whilst the assem bled distinguished guests awaited 
His Majesty's presence. 

VISIT TO KOBE. 

King Kalakaua sailed from Yokohama, the 16th March on 
board the steamship Tokio Mara. His Majesty was accom- 
panied on the journey by the Princes and Daimios, who had 
been commanded by tli« Emperor to attend upon the King 
as especial escort, during every hour of his stay in Japan. 
The courtesy and royal attention shown to the King in Japan, 
recals the spirit of princely courtesy of the noblest days of the 
7

mediceval qhivalrj of Christendom. Hawaii is placed undei 
deep obligation to Japan. 

The royal party arrived at Kobe on the 18th March—and 
were received by the Gpvernor of the City with ceremonious 
attention. His Majesty rested a short while at the Governor's 
residence; and during his short stay visited a grand and an- 
cient palace, and one of the extensive temples of Japan. The 
palace of Kobe is surrounded by a wall 12 feet high and 3 feet 
wide at the top. In the great audience Hall is a throne of 
large dimension and singular structure. In the center of the 
Hall is a raised square of dais, of gold and vermillion lacquer. 
This is covered with a canopy of heavy embroidered silk of 
the richest quahty. In the centre of the dais is a throne 
chair, of brilliant gold and vermillion lacquer; and the roof of 
this stately hall is supported by 12 lofty smooth columns, or 
resplendent shafts with surfaces of polished gold. On each 
side of the dais,' are suspended picture of the Emperor and 
the Empress of Japan. All the doors of the palace are 
frames covered with pictured tapestry, and are moved in 
grooves or slides. The royal party noticed a beautiful minia- 
ture lake in the palace grounds, enclosed by box bush shrub- 
bery. A narrow causeway, shaded with the rarest shrubbery 
leads to a rock in the centre of the pellucid lake. This rock 
is ovei'grown with mosses and creepers, and has a delightful 
cool grotto recess; and in this sweet spot, whose sacred priv- 
acy is only invaded by the lake carp, or the Japanese thrush, 
their Imperial Majesties of Niphon come to cool their sacred 
persons during the summer solstice. 

At the Buddhist temple, a grand and gloomy structure, 
two dozen priests robed in vari colored silks and gold, receiv- 
ed the King and suite. The royal party were conducted into 
the presence of the collossal images of Buddha; the Badiva 
or Sacred Parent of the ancient Asiatic world. Our travel- 
lers were allowed to gaze a short while but not to enter the 
recesses where the god and the symbolic dragon were placed-

lu one of theae recesses, or consecrated niches, they saw 
placed behind Buddha, a large painting representing a "lamb- 
in the hip of the Son of Buddha." After a time wandering 
through the halls o£ the great temple, the high priest con- 
ducted His Majesty to a tasteful chamber, where refreshments 
were served in rare and unique style. Prominent upon a 
beautiful lacquered table was a large fish about 2. feet long, 
and showing all the natural bright colors, gold, ebony and. 
scarlet of one of the most beautiful of the sclerodermes (the 
parrot fish that sports in Hawaiian waters). And yet the 
fish was well cooked, and these colors were the tints of whole- 
some condiments applied by the artist of Buddha's cuisine, 
after the culinary process was accomplished. A marvelous 
fish and birds and flowers of confectionery astonished the 
eyes of the travellers from the far Pacific islands, — and were 
presented to His Majesty to be forwarded to his island home. 
The high priest said that no one had sat at this table before 
except the Emperor or Mikado. His Majesty was seated 
upon a beautiful chair made of polished tortoise shell. The 
old high priest explained before eating, that this was the 
table of sacrifice of the Mikado; a sort of alter of thank otter- 
ing. And a tray of small red papers, incense powder,, and 
small fruits were placed before His Majesty, and a small por- 
tion of each were burned in an urn or censer; and after this 
form of Buddhist grace, the party fell too, and partook of a 
marvelous and most appretizing entertainment. 

After leaving the temple His Majesty visited severals 
schools; one where little girls were taught embroidery; and 
some schools of boys; and the King was delighted with the 
bright appearance and cheerfulness of the little students of 
the several institutions. 

Afterwards His Majesty and suite partook of tiffin, or lunch 
with His Excellency the Governor of Kobe. 

The royal party on leaving Kobe proceeded by rail to 
Osaka distant 2.4 miles,, and made a run at stage coach speed 
in 4 hours. 



Here the same ceremonies were repeated by the Governor 
of the city, as at Kobe. ;A grand dinner was prepared; 
which however the royal party had to decline. From Osaka 
the royal party proceeded to Kioto; and thence to the beau- 
tiful city of Nangasaki. 

At this point, the four princes, who had escorted the King; 
and who had waited on His Majesty during every hour of his 
stay in Japan, now took affectionate congee of their royal 
guest; who embarked March 22d on the Tokio Maru, that 
had been despatched expressly to wait on His Majesty, and 
transport the royal party to Shanghai. 



ARRIVAL IN CHINA. 



AT SHANGHAI. 

His Majesty and suite arrived off the bar of the Shanghai 
roadstead on the 25th March and were takee thence by tug 
to the city, and were escorted by Mr. Jansen to the Astor 
Hotel. After a rest on the following day. His Majesty was 
waited upon by the Taotai, or chief magistrate of the city, 
and other Chinese dignitaries, and foreign representatives^ 
The party took rides on the rigshaw, or one wheeled Chinese 
express at the rate of 10 cash, or one cent a mile. Witnessed 
a review, and. were well entertained during a short stay at 
Shang!hai„ 

On the 27th March the royal party embarked on the Fau- 
tah, one of the China Merchants 'Steamer Line; the King 
having been informed by the President of the Company, that 
by telegram from His Excellency Li Hung Chang the Viceroy 
residing at Tientsin, this vessel was placed at the disposal of 
His Majesty. The royal party steamed over the Yellow Sea, 
and arrived at the bar o£ the Bund, qn the morning of 29th 
March.

AT TIENTSIN- VISITS THE VICEROY. 

On the following day all the foreign representatives in the 
city waited on His Majesty on board the Pautah. On the 31st 
His Majesty and suite called upon the Viceroy Li Hang the 
Prime Minister and actual Ruler of China. 

This distinguished official of the great Empire speaks little 
or no English, therefore His Majesty needed the assistance of 
an interpreter during a lengthy and highly interesting conver- 
sation. His Majesty with his thoughts ever patriotically oc- 
cupied with the interests of his country, discussed on this 
occasion the great need of his little Kingdom, owing to the 
disproportion of sexes, of more women accompanying the 
emigration to his realm. The enlightened Viceroy expressed 
a high appreciation of His Majesty's patriotic anxiety in 
order to promote the increase and better social order of his 
island Kingdom, and said that should any farther emi- 
gration of the people of the Empire for the Sandwich Islands 
take place, he would favor all in his power, provided some 
provision was made by His Majesty's Government to assist 
female emigration. 

The following day the 1st of April, the Viceroy waited 
upon His Majesty on board the Pautah. His Excellency and 
suite were conveyed in a splendid steam launch. They ar- 
rived on board punctual to appointment at noon, and remain- 
ed several hours on board. 

After the departure of the Viceroy, in the evening of the 
same day; the royal party went ashore, to partake of a grand 
Chinese dinner and soiree, given by the Viceroy in honor of 
His Majesty in the spacious building of the China Merchants 
Steamship Co. At 6.30 the arrival of the Viceroy was 
announced. A few minutes afterwards, as His Majesty and 
suite entered, three guns were fired. (The royal salute of 
China.) The feast was a marvel of Chinese ingenuity and 
luxury, and there was present on the occasion a splendid dis- 
play of official Chinese dress, and of foreign uniforms, but no 
ladies. As the King noticed the absence of the gentler sex, His 
Majesty was informed by a distinguished mandarin that official 
etiquette forbade the presence of ladies on such an occasion; 
and in vindication of Chinese custom he said that Chinese 
ladies, who had no assembhes or Church meetings for mutual 
display and encounter, which Western civillization favored, 
but had to stay at home with their families, generally loved 
and spoke wefl of their neighboring sisters; and the worthy 
8 



58 

mandarin wished to know if the ladies of His Majesty's capi- 
tal were all animated by this excellent and amiable spirit. 
His Majesty's reply is not reported, but it was no doubt dic- 
tated by that wisdom and discretion requisite to meet the 
possible irony and insidious character of the enquiry. 

EETURN TO SHANGHAI. 

On the 2d April His Majesty and suite re-embarked on 
board the Fautah, and steaming back over the Yellow Sea, 
returned to|Shanghai on the 6th April. 

On the 9th April, His Majesty and suite left Shanghai per 
steamer, and arrived in Hongkong on the 12th April. 

AT HONGKONG. 

His Majesty King Kalakaua arrived on the 12th April. It 
was arranged that a banquet should be given in honor of His 
Majesty at Government House on Monday next. Immediate- 
ly after the banquet His Majesty will hold a public reeeptipii, 
at which the Members of Council, Heads of Departments, 
Naval and Military Officers, Foreign Consuls, and the lead- 
ing residents of the Colony, both ladies and gentlemen, will 
be introduced to His Majesty. 

BANQUET AND RECEPTION. 

His Excellency the Governor and Lady Hennessy gave a 
grand banquet in honor of His Majesty the King of Hawaii, 
after which a reception was held by His Majesty, which was 
numerously attended, about three hundred persons being 
present. Dancing commenced about half-past ten. His 
Majesty leading off Lady Hennessy, and was kept up till past 
midnight, to the strains of the Band of the 27th Inniskillings. 
The assemblage was a brilliant one and pi'oved a gi-eat suc- 
cess, the gathering being truly cosmopolitan and representa- 
tive. 

VISIT TO KOWLOONG. 

Yesterday morning, Mr. C. P. Chater, Deputy District 
Grand Master of the Freemasons of Hongkong, entertained 
His Majesty the King of Hawaii, and suite, His Excellency 
the Governor, and a large number of the residents at tiffin in 
his spacious bungalow at Kowloong, His Majesty King Kala- 
kaua and suite and His Excellency Sir John Pope He'nnessy, 
attended by his Private Secretary, Dr. Eitel, arrived about 
half-past one o'clock, and were received at the garden steps

by the hospitable boat, who conducted them to the entrance 
of the banqueting room, where they were received with a, 
ringing cheer by the assembled guests. About one hundred 
and lorty guests sat down to an elegant aud most bountiful re- 
past., In the centre of the room were ranged Mr. Chater's 
numerous and handsome trophies of the turf; which presented 
a really magnificent coup d'ceil. The distinguished guests 
having been seated in order of precedence, the tiffin proceed- 
ed. At its close Mr. Chater rose and in a few well chosen 
and apposiie sentence proposed the health of His Majesty the 
King of Hawaii. The toast was received with great enthusi- 
asm, the company drinking it in bumpers and giving three 
ringing cheers for their illustrious visitor. The King replied 
iu a short but felicitous speech, in the course of which he said 
that though his kingdom had no commercial treaty with the 
Colony of Hongkong he should be glad to enter into one of 
friendship with it, and (referring to Mr. Chater's collection of 
racing cups) would feel pleasure in forwarding a cup to be 
contested for at the next annual races, and he had no doubt 
his friends in Hongkong would return the compliment and 
send one tO' Honolulu. A long continued outburst of applause 
followed this sallj. His Majesty concluded by gracefully 
proposing the health of Her Majesty the Queen. The toast 
was received with fervent acclamation. 



KING KALAKAUA IN SIAM. 



His Majesty and suite took passage from Hongkong to 
Bangkok. Passing over an uneventful voyage, thej' arrived 
at the bar of the Mewan, the great river of Siam, on the 
morning of the 2&th April.. On entering the river, the steam^ 
yacht of the King of Siam was seen approaching, and shortly 
afterwards a twelve-oared boat carrying the flag of the White 
Elephant came alongside, carrying an officer ol His Majesty's 
household, conmissioned to tender to King,Kalakaua the hos- 
pitalities of his brother of Siam. The invitation was accom- 
panied by expressions of regret on the part of His Majesty 
that he had irot received sufficiently early notice of the arrival 
of his royal visitor to allow of his meeting him in person at 
the river bar. Another boat accompanied that of the Envoy, 
carrying His Siamese Majesty's Aide-de-Camp, Dissawoeka- 
MARU. Salutations were exchanged, and the whoie party 
proceeded on board the yacht, which is descri bed as " a 
beautiful boat," and made in her the voyage up the Menam 



62 

to Bangkok, a distance of about twenty railes. The manner 
in which this yacht was found and fitted seems to have excit- 
ed the admiration of all the party. Under an awning, so 
tasteful in its character as to attract attention even among so 
many novelties, cool drinks and delicious liquors had been 
provided in profusion, with the wellcome accompaniment of 
the choicest Manila and Siamese cheroots. 

ARRIVAL IN BANGKOK. 

Bangkok, as our party steamed through it under these lux- 
urious circumstances proved highly interesting. Many of its 
peculiarities which attracted their notice are common to 
other river-side cities ot Eastern Asia, but Bangkok has a 
quaint character of its own, which makes it worthy of a more 
prolonged visit, than our travellers could pay. The river 
divides the city, and on either side, built out on slender piles 
into the stream itself, stores of every description line the 
shores, whilst the river itself is alive with boats and canoes. 
The curiously designed pagodas, the temples with their tile- 
lined fronts, brilhant with gilding and silvering, burnished 
so that they refl.ect the i-ays of a truly tropical sun with a daz- 
zle which obliges the eye to turn elsewhere, the. green and 
trim gardens full of the brightest flowers, made a picture 
which none of the party will soon forget. 

It was half-past six before the voyage up the river came to 
an end. A splendid large boat manned by 24 oarsmen took 
the royal party ashore, and from the landing they were con- 
veyed in sedan chairs to the Palace of one of the Princes; a 
regiment of infantay lining the way, and several royal vessels 
and men-of-war lying in the river, and firing salutes, Here 
His Hawaiian Majesty was received in truly royal style. By 
a splendid marble staircase flanked by rows of polished gra- 
nite columns. His Majesty entered an antechamber, some 
eighty feet in length, with floors in mosaic of marble, and 
furniture of ebony. Statues, vases, and other products of the 
highest order of Western art, and paintings by European 
masters lined the apartment, whilst damasks, hanging richly 
embroidered in gold, served to conceal the multitude of 
guards and servants who were in attendance. 

The following day at 2 p. m. had been fixed for the recep- 
tion of King KalakAua by his royal brother of Siam. Ac- 
companied by his suite and by Prince Dissaworkumaku, His 
Majesty was conveyed to the Palace. This building is de- 
scribed as a masterpiece of architecture; built of highly, polish- 
ed marble, the inner walls inlaid with precious stones, the 
floors a mosaic of colored marbles. The King of Siam is a

mail of about 27 years of age, with^ firm resolute face, no 
beard, a keen eye and massive forfehead. \Jle was dressed 
for the occasion in a tunic of gold brocade, with the silk gar- 
ment, worn by all Siamese of rank, wound round his legs, 
leaving, as is their custom, a little bare at the back of the 
knee. He was decorated with a multitude of insignia of va- 
rious orders, and his sword belt glittered with diamonds, 
rubies and sapphires. His Siamese Majesty was attended by 
His Minister of Foreign Affairs, Chow Phya Bhanuwougse, 
and forty other high ofKcers of state. 

His Siamese Majesty greeted the Hawaiian King and, 
through his interpreter, asked after his health and expressed 
his fegret that, through shortness of notice, he was not better 
prepared for His Majesty's reception. King Ealakaua was 
conducted^ to a seat, but Siamese etiquette bade all others re- 
main standing. After a short conversation His Siamese 
Majesty retired with a ceremonious farewell. 

At four o'clock in the afternoon of the 28th, the arrival of 
a troop of cavalry announced the approach of His Siamese 
Majesty to return the visit of King Kalakaua. He came in a 
carriage, which to the eyes of his guests appeared to be all of 
gold, drawn by four horses. His Majesty and two Ministers 
who were in attendance on him, alighted and were received 
at the threshold of the palace by King Kalakaua. Congratu- 
lations were exchanged and as on the occasion of their former 
meeting only the two monarchs were seated 

In true Oi'iental style the royal host did not allow his guest 
to depart without presents suitable to his rank. In the even- 
ing a State dinner was given at the palace, and at eleven the 
following morning a regretful leave was taken of Bangl^ok, 
its fairy-like palaces and temples, its hospitable monarch, and 
the kindly men of rank who had vied with their sovereign in 
his endeavor to make the stay of their visitors from the lone- 
ly Isles of the Pacific as delightful as a dream. A superb 
barge manned by 24 oarsmen, was ready to receive the royal 
traveller, and after a pull of 15 minutes landed the King and 
suite on the steamer Bangkok. The royal Hawaiian standard 
was hoisted at the main; the troops on shore fired a salute; 
and the multitudes of hospitable Siamese gave prolonged, and 
rousing cheers, as the royal travelling party steamed away 
down the Menam. 

THE KING m SINGAPORE. 

His Majesty, accompanied by his suite and Mr. Herwig, 
the Hawaiian Consul, landed about a quarter past 10 a. m. at 
Johnston's Pier, and theu walked down to the Hotel de 
9 



rEurope where th« Kijiig is staying. A large crowd of 
natives and Europeans witnessed His Majesty's landing and 
manitested a lively and respectful curiosity. Johnston's Pier 
was most tastefully decorated with palms and evergreen 
plants, and the large number of flags, with the Hawaiian 
national flag on a large pole, added greatly to the general ef- 
fect. 

On Saturday H. E. the Governor Sir Frederick A. Weld 
drove down t(5 town with his four-in-hand, in full uniform, and 
returned the call of H. M. the King of the Hawaiian Islands. 
Afterwards His Majesty and suite drove with His Ex. to the 
reservoir, with which His Majesty expressed himself highly 
pleased. Yesterday afternoon His Majesty held a reception 
at Oovernment House, when many officials and other gentle- 
men and ladies were presented. In the evening His Excel- 
lency and Lady Weld gave a large official dinner in honor of 
His Majesty, at which Admiral Aslambegoff and Prince Tor- 
loiiia were also present. 

RECEPTION BY THE SULTAN OF JOHOEE. 

During the stay at Singapore, His Majesty received some 
distinguished royal courtesy at the hands of the Sultan, or 
Maharajah of Johore, whose palace is distant forty miles 
from Singapore. His Majesty the King having accepted an 
invitation to visit His Highness the Maharajah, the steam 
launch of the Prince was despatched to Singapore, and on the 
morning of 10th May conveyed the royal traveller to the 
palace of Istana. Our travellers were astonished and delight- 
ed with the fine architecture and royal appointments of the 
palace, ^uitan Abubakr and his courtiers have marked 
Hawaiian types of features, and the Malay Prince was recog- 
nized as presenting a striking likeness to the late Hawaiian 
Prince Leleiohoku. The ladies of the Court of Istana are 
spoken of in terms of enthusiastic eulogy. 

Costly furniture and bricabac adorn this noble palace, the 
hospitality of which was extended so royally to our King, 
that we are placed under deep obligation by the Malay Sul- 
tan, as we have been by a Japanese Emperor, a Siamese 
King, and a Chinese Viceroy. 

After a stay of seven days in Singapore, His Majesty King 
Kalakaua took his departure for Calcutta en route to Europe 
the 12th May by the B. I. 8. K Co.'s steamer Mecca, Cap- 
tain Thomson.
